  1. I like how it lists "condition: excellent" when the (not very detailed) pics show a bunch of scrapes/dings. I guess those add value and condition points.
  2. I was thinking the walnut stained birch cabinets had a cool pattern to them. Then I looked at the price he was asking and fell out of my chair.
  3. Wow, great detective work, everyone. I'm impressed. I had never even heard of primavera (and thanks for pointing out it was an "S" rather than a "5"). Light stain (1S) on primavera (P) = P1S. Thanks!
  4. Not a great deal on these, but I don't know if I've seen this finish on a label before, so I thought I'd ask. http://maine.craigslist.org/ele/5983900500.html Frankly, if he/she gets $3500 for these with some water stains and a dent and a scratch, I'll put mine up for sale. Does anyone know what finish P15 is? I thought they were just Oak until I looked at the tags.
  5. When I was looking for a 103, I had good luck at the Emotiva lounge; there were many listed (right when the 203 was coming out), and you might have some luck on eBay. Occasionally, there are reasonably priced ones there since Oppo has come out with their replacement for the 103 and will have a replacement for the 105 soon. But, lots of good people here will help you find one, I'm sure.
  6. There must be room for your new oak Khorns and those belles. Those are too beautiful to sell.
  7. I did get one from the Emotiva forum...thanks Ibiza for pointing me in that direction. I hadn't logged in a long time, and had to find my username. Budman, you have a PM.
  8. I'd second that...they certainly aren't mint, but also aren't beat to hell. I've seen a lot worse for La Scalas (and others). I think that they might be black originally. Blacks were just birch underneath the paint. The black was painted underneath the tag (you can see the outline of where the tag was, which is on top of the black paint). If they weren't black originally, I don't think you'd be able to see where the tag was if someone had painted over. Just my guess.
  9. Thanks...I had forgotten my log in info so hadn't looked here, but I did the work to recover the username.
  10. I don't think I'll get the 203 since it doesn't have streaming apps built in...still looking for a 103 if anyone who is getting a 203 wants to sell.
  11. Interesting...I thought that would be a natural continuation as well.
  12. If he really does have CF-3s plus a sub, $300 is a bargain. But, that picture isn't of his speakers, so who knows.
  13. Went fast...Ad is already gone off Audiogon. At $375, they seem high since Oppo is coming out with a newer replacement in about a week (estimated) in the $499-$599 price point.
  14. You have a PM
  15. I'm just wondering if anyone has an Oppo BDP 103 Blu Ray player (or maybe an older model) they want to part with. I know they're coming out with a replacement for it (but not out yet). I'm looking more toward the lower price model; I don't need all the features; I just want a really good player for DVD, Blu Ray, and cds. So, if you've got one in good shape that you want to part with, send me a PM. I'm also keeping my eyes on any holiday deals for other brands in case I don't find a used Oppo, so this thread may be obsolete in a couple weeks if I give up hope and find something else. Thanks!
